The Siberian Husky Dog And His Family

Dated back to earlier times, the Chukchi tribes from northeastern Asia were the first to breed Siberian Husky dogs. It was during 1909 when these sleigh dogs were brought to Alaska for the first time in history to compete in the All-Alaska Sweepstakes race, where they drew the attention of the Alaskan dog breeders for their great running abilities. The American Kennel Club (AKC) offered recognition to these dogs in 1930. Eight years after this recognition, the Siberian Club of America was instituted.

Siberian Husky dogs are a gentle breed with pleasing temperament. The Chukchis raised their dogs with high admiration, considered them as an integral part of the family and inspired their children to play with the dogs. This probably facilitated the development of a warm, gentle, social and human-like attitude in these dogs. With their alert and intelligent nature, the Siberian Husky can become a warm companion for people of any age with diversified interest levels.

Siberian Huskies cannot be classified as single master dogs, although they possess a strong dedication and friendliness to their family. They tend to socialize with new people they come across. Typically, they do not show any fear or suspicion to strangers and this tendency deterrents their quality to become a good watch dog, although they can come up with involuntary violence and show their strong defensive attitude if attacked. They act gently at the time of getting socialized with dogs from other breeds.

Empowered with their strong hunting instinct such as swiftness, sneakiness and great tolerance skills, Siberian Husky dogs show their voracious attitude towards small house animals like squirrels, birds, cats, rabbits, hamsters and guinea pigs and can cause serious harm to them. So the owner of a Siberian Husky must maintain enough precaution if he plans to raise small animals together with a Siberian Husky. Otherwise, the dog may promote a mess in and around the home.

Siberian Husky dogs do not need much attention since they have a instinct to stay clean. These dogs are covered with a dense coat of abundant volume. For these dogs, shedding usually occurs once per year. Siberian Husky dogs are especially inclined towards digging holes and find it a favorite leisure activity. The dog is easier to keep since it requires much less food compared with its size. Traced back to early days, these dogs were fed with small amount of food in order to keep them active.

Siberian Husky dogs possess a strong instinct to run. Since early days, these dogs have shown their true inclination to run, as they are found to enjoy this instinct from true core of their heart. However, this tendency may pose a serious threat to their existence if indulged. You may consider a situation when they endure their running aptitude through a busy road. So, if you own a Siberian Husky, you better know how to confine it wisely in order to ensure its maximum protection. If you feel bad seeing dog in confinement the Siberian Husky may not be a good choice for you.
